Details about this tour

After being picked up from your hotel, travel the short distance in a comfortable coach with your guide to Iguaz National Park, where you'll spend your day on the Argentinian side of Iguassu Falls.

Don't forget your camera, as theres nothing quite like this natural wonder, one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay meet. Youll be amazed as 400,000 gallons (1.5 million liters) of water a second plummet onto the rocks below in a network of more than 270 waterfalls.

When booking, choose from the following two options (both options are a total of eight hours in duration; the boat ride with the jungle-truck option is slightly different, as it starts at the location where the jungle ride ends).

Tour with boat ride only (Option temporally NOT Available due to maintenance work at the pier) : Your guided visit takes you to the parks three tiers, providing different views of Iguassu Falls. Follow the lower path to the base of the falls, an atmospheric world of mist and crashing water. Then take the upper path to the top for panoramic views from the footbridge over the waterfalls. Your guide will lead the way and tell you about the different features of the falls, but youll also have free time to explore on your own and get something to eat at a restaurant located in the park (own expense).

Then, get ready for the ultimate Iguassu Falls experience: a boat ride through the falls! Expect to get wet and be thrilled by this up-close encounter, after which youll dry off and be taken back to your Puerto Iguaz hotel.

Tour with jungle-truck ride and boat ride:
Experience both the jungle and the waterfalls of Iguaz National Park with this tour option. Hop on an off-road vehicle for a thrilling 5-mile (8-km) safari-like ride through the tropical forest, and marvel at the abundant variety of trees and flowers, including palm, ficus, palo santo, orchids and bromelia. Watch for butterflies of vivid colors in the foliage; maybe youll spot the red, black and white ones sporting a curious pattern on its wings in the shape of the number 88.

The jungle-truck ride ends at Macuco Port, where youll climb aboard a motorboat and cruise for 4 miles (6 km), the last mile of which you will zip through the rapids of Iguassu River Canyon. Approach tantalizingly close to several waterfalls, including Three Musketeers, U-shaped Devils Throat and the impressive San Martin falls. Disembark and take a break at San Martin Island, after which youll be taken back to your Puerto Iguaz hotel.

    Promote in pick up and transfer to the Iguazu Park. Great walk along the upper Falls and then the boat ride. After that a train ride to main falls above the Devils throat.

    The best tour of the waterfalls and the tour guide was very organized. There wasn’t much info about iguazu from this specific tour , but we were always aware of our meeting points. The best part was the boat ride going into the waterfalls . We got soaked and he took us three times through these waterfalls. Other people didn’t get the boat ride , which is the highlight of our tour.

    AVOID. Grayline Argentina the local operator DID NOT pick me up at my Puerto Iguazu hotel, and had the wrong hotel pick-up location. When I got through to a live customer representative, the rep INSISTED and said their records showed I had written down via Viator a different a pick-up hotel. This is wrong. 1 Viator.com booking clearly has a record of what hotel I put down as a pick-up location, and was the same one I always said they should pick me up. 2 The hotel they insisted I had put down DOES NOT EVEN EXIST in Puerto Iguazu.

    I had called and emailed previously to try to confirm my location, but the English line often hangs up on you, making it impossible to confirm via phone, especially when youre traveling. They never responded to my emails for confirmation.

    We had a blast . many people, groups choose different sections, would have been good if separate for adventure boat tour from others but the highlight other than the great views was the waterfall boat tour.. lots of fun.. and very wet! Can use Visa for gate entry but need passport ID otherwise cash

    Even though it was raining for the walking section of the tour, this did not spoil the fantastic views. The boat ride was awesome. It takes you right under the falls with tons of water falling right on top of you. Warning : do not have food in front of or around the monkeys and coaties!

    Recommend you do the tour with the option to do the board ride at the bottom of the falls - it was the most fun we had! you will get completely soaked by going close to the falls. At the beginning of the tour we went through two trails - I preferred the second trail as you get a different view you'll do both anyway. January is a busy time and high-season so lots of people are around but the tour guide really kept everyone together.

    This was an amazing experience. The Falls are breathtaking and this is the only real way to experience them! The boat ride took us under the falls and we got soaked, but we loved it! The only tough part was climbing the 300 steps afterwards in soaked clothing and shoes. We highly recommend this tour!!!
